Get Relief Without a Clunky CPAP
CPAP is no longer the only game in town when it comes to treating your sleep apnea. Using a sleep apnea mouthpiece, Dr. Kirchner can give you the relief you’ve been looking for. This custom appliance will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, gently moving your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open.
The result is that you’ll sleep better and feel better without a sleep apnea mask. Plus, since a partially blocked airway can cause snoring, you’ll snore less, and your bed partner will enjoy a better quality of sleep as well. It’s a win-win situation for both of you – all without the noise and bother of a cumbersome CPAP machine. There’s nothing to plug in and nothing except a small dental appliance to pack along with you when you travel.
An Appliance Will Treat Sleep Apnea to Protect Your Health
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that shouldn’t be taken lightly. If not controlled, it can increase your susceptibility to high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, and even depression.
Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form of this condition, occurs when your air passages become blocked while sleeping. Your tongue and soft tissues in the rear of your throat can relax to the point that they restrict your air.
When this happens, sleep apnea sufferers often wake up momentarily with a loud snort, take in a few normal breaths, then fall back asleep. Usually, they’re not even aware of this process, although it can happen dozens of times per hour.
A dental appliance for sleep apnea can help prevent these episodes. If you think you could be suffering from sleep apnea, you can get help from a Jeffersonville oral appliance. Call us today at 812-913-6093 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kirchner. You can also .
